Chiropractic care during pregnancy is an important component among your prenatal care choices. Preexisting but unnoticed imbalances in your spine and pelvis can become stressed during pregnancy. These imbalances often lead to discomforts such as lower back pain, sciatica, pubic pain, or round ligament pain. In addition, imbalances in the pelvis may restrict baby’s movement and hamper optimal positioning for delivery, which can slow down labor and add pain and distress to both mother and baby.
Doctors of Chiropractic work specifically with your spine and pelvis throughout pregnancy to restore a state of balance and create an optimal environment for the developing baby. Chiropractic care can relieve and even prevent the common discomforts experienced in pregnancy. Published studies have also indicated that spinal and pelvic adjustments throughout pregnancy may even reduce labor time and allow for an easier and safer delivery. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is very gentle and safe and promotes a natural and uncomplicated pregnancy and delivery.

How does chiropractic care benefit you during pregnancy?
Chiropractic restores and optimizes the body to a place of balance and ease. Dr. Nateja is certified in the Webster Technique, a gentle chiropractic technique specifically designed for pregnant women. We focus on balancing the pelvis using the Webster Technique to ensure optimal space for growth of baby and maximum comfort for mom.
Chiropractic has been shown to help moms with an easier birth, decrease discomfort, and improve overall health and function.
Why get chiropractic care after giving birth?
Moms continue to produce the hormone relaxin for up to 6 months after birth. This means the ligaments holding the joints together continue to be very relaxed, and consequently the body is shifting more as it recovers from pregnancy and the birthing experience.
It's beneficial to get chiropractic care during the postpartum to regain and maintain proper balance of the nerve system and increase the bodies natural ability to heal.
When is a good time to get your baby or child checked by a chiropractor?
The birthing process, whether its a vaginal birth or cesarean, can put a lot of stress on baby's developing nerve system. We recommend all our moms to bring their new baby in for a newborn wellness check within the first two weeks after birth (unless there were complications during birth). Newborn adjustments are very gentle, no more pressure is used than you would to check the ripeness of a tomato.
